Ja'Shun Lee Watson

Age 2

Little Rock, Arkansas

Paw Paw and Mama’s little grandson

He used to run through his grandparents’ front door saying, “Paw paw” and “Mama mama.” He lived with his baby sister and mother in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Two days after Christmas, he was found lying next to his 23-year-old mother, Jameika Lewis, near their car at the Eagle Points apartment complex. A woman attempted to wake them and called for help.

Police arrived to find Ja’Shun Lee Watson, 2, and Lewis dead from gunshot wounds. Ja’Shun’s two-week-old sister also was in the parking lot. She survived.
